and signed by president obama. the idea being to make it so painful not to cut a deal on taxes and spending that they would be forced to cut a deal on taxes and spending. except keeping them honest, they haven't done it. even though they knew the stakes, they knew the deadline, and both sides promised that this time things would be different. >> we need to return to fiscal responsibility. >> how is it that we're going to be able to do that? getting our fiscal house in order. >> the american people have spoken loudly. they want us to get our fiscal house in order. >> fiscal handcuffs on this congress that are sorely needed. >> washington is beginning to get its fiscal house in order. >> so they approve legislation that gave everyone nearly a year and a half to reach a long-term agreement on spending and taxes or face truly punishing consequences if they didn't. you'll remember at the time this was a really big deal. republicans had forced the issue by refusing to raise the debt ceiling without budget cuts. markets went haywire. gabby giffords even returned to washington from rehab from her a
and become the obama tax cuts, right? i think that's what conservatives and republicans should be most worried about from a long-term political perspective right now. i mean, in a sense, they have sort of -- they have won a particular policy battle in the sense that most of the bush tax cuts, both parties believe should be extended. right? we're talking about 97%, 98% of the bush tax cuts. you could say that's a policy win for republicans, but if those tax cuts ended up getting branded as obama's tax cuts that he passed after we went over the fiscal cliff, it then loses whatever upside there was for republicans, except, and we have to mention this, for republicans vulnerable to primary challenges, there's obviously a lot of anxiety about being, you know, the first republican in 20 years to vote for a tax increase. i think that's the big fear, that it's been so long. republicans haven't cast this kind of vote. you don't want to be the first one to do it. >> yeah, and charles, we're told the democrats may be waiting until the very last minute. maybe they're banking on pressure and the go

that was clear about what president obama and the democrats campaigned on, was this fall back plan or the small piece of tax cuts being extended for 98% of american families and small businesses. there is a big in the senate sitting there now that the fous could vote on. the house could call a vote on it right now and 98% of america's family could see protection of their tax cuts extended. so i think that is a strong position for the democrats. the majority of american people agree that the wealthy can afford to pay people more. >> you believe president and leaders prefer going over the cliff, but republicans do have the option of locking in tax cuts for most americans right now. >> as you said, the president can increase taxes and point the coin fer at the republicans. but we need to have spending cuts. this is not an issue that is going to be resolved with taxes right away. the house has issued legislation that would extend the tax cuts and erase the military cuts. but something else that came up, secretary geithner issued a letter today warning the country that we are going to hit the debt c
